Steve spoke to journalists 2012 and denied that gaffe-prone was an instigation by anyone in public.

“He wasn’t based on anyone. He really isn’t,”He said this during the Sky Atlantic launch.

“The Richard Madeley thing, bizarrely, I actually think things he says are too ridiculous for Alan.

He’s almost like old-school Alan. I find him quite fascinating, but he’s not the basis for it. He does say things that are quite Alan-like.”

Richard, Good Morning Britain’s host, blasted critics who compared him with the incompetent fictional broadcaster before he entered the Welsh castle.

The Mirror’s former This Morning star explained that jokes or humorous comparisons can sometimes be misunderstood.

“If the gaffe thing was as frequent and as serious as is sometimes written, I wouldn’t have a job,”He elaborated.

“I’m not going to get into a defensive crouch about it, but sometimes I read these things that I’m supposed to have said in the past, and I just didn’t say them.

He continued to explain that there was nothing you can do about the claims and that he’s “Don’t be too worried” about the gaffe jokes.

I’ve done thousands and thousands of hours of live television and I’ve never been sued for libel. So I think I’ll be all right,”He added.
